Coconut Almond Butter Chocolate Chunk Brownie (or, F*cking Awesome in My Mouth)

Kara wanted to call this recipe F*cking Awesome in My Mouth. While that is an accurate description, I didn't think it was very search engine friendly. Two of those words together in the same search brings in a completely different demographic. While I'm sure there is some overlap with porn and Crossfit, that's not what I'm going for here. 

I made this up last night in preparation for a Chili and Wings Throwdown we're hosting on Sunday afternoon. The original plan was to make a paleo alternative to cornbread, but somehow I ended up making a decadent brownie dessert instead. Either way everyone wins.


Coconut Almond Butter Chocolate Chunk Brownie
1 jar of almond butter (the cheap stuff from Whole Foods)
2 eggs

¼ cup of raw organic honey, melted
1 tbsp vanilla extract
½ tsp sea salt
1 tsp baking soda
½ cup shredded coconut flakes
1 Lindt 80% dark chocolate bar, chopped

Preheat oven to 325.

Microwave the jar of almond butter for about 30 seconds to soften it, and then pour the almond butter into a large bowl. Add the eggs and mix with a hand mixer until smooth. Melt the honey in the microwave. Add the honey, vanilla, salt, and baking soda, and mix the batter. Then add in coconut flakes and continue to mix thoroughly. The batter with be very thick and sticky.

Fold in chopped chocolate pieces.

Pour mixture into 9x9 ungreased pan or glass baking dish. Bake for 35-40 minutes.

Best served warm and with Purely Decadent Chocolate Coconut Milk Ice Cream.

  8. I made these last night. Used organic coconut flakes (no sugar and not moist). Opted for chunky almond butter. Chopped up a very organic dark chocolate bar then added extra chocolate chips (I used Nestle mini chips since I had some sitting around). I used my friend's totally unprocessed local honey. Tossed in Himalayan salt. They were AMAZING. Everyone loved them and couldn't believe they didn't have flour. I will make these again and again and again and again . . . Next time I'll add even more chocolate and in bigger chunks. These are best served slightly warmed.
